In 1984 Nancy Rooks released a book called, “The Maid, The Man, and the Fans,” which talked a little bit about the maid, a little bit about The Man (Elvis), and a little bit about one fan in particular (the co-author). What she didn’t cover here I assume she covered in her 2005 book, “Inside Graceland.” For those wanting to track down the 1984 book, though, be advised: of the 3 sections of the book, Rooks writes only one of them, and that one section is a scant 14-and-a-half pages long (and the book measures just 8″x 5.5″).

More to come on the details of the Rooks account of 8/16/77.
